I like the simplicity of this text message. "Our prime purpose in this life is to LOVE OTHERS. But if you CAN'T LOVE them, at least don't HURT THEM." Do you agree? Why don't you share your thoughts on this..

i also got that message from my friend..yes, i agree that one of our purpose in life is to love someone..but sometimes, we can't say that when loving a person, we don't have the assurance that we can't hurt them..like in my situation, i got a suitor before, but i don't love him because i don't feel the magic of love in my heart, and i think i hurt him because i wasn't give him a chance to be his gf..

That was unintentionally hurt che. Yes, somehow you hurt his feelings but I think he will be HURT MORE once you give him a chance to be his gf and yet you're not in love with him :( Have a nice day :)

I do indeed agree, it is like that old saying "if you cant say something good, then do not say it at all"

Well, I think that what you said is right. I like this message and I think that in all its simplicity it is great. The problem is that not always, for many reasons we can respect the moral teaching coming from it. Seldom our selfishness gives us another way of thinking and we behave just like barbarians. It is difficult not to hurt others, also when you don't want to.

Yes, it is really difficult not to hurt others especially our love ones, but there are times we hurt them unintentionally :(
